Due to some very revealing spy shots of Volkswagen's NMC (New Midsize Coupe), there is little we don't know about the styling, however, this does appear to be the first official press image that has surfaced.

The china-only model is essentially a CC version of the Jetta (Sagitar in China) and draws its looks from the New Midsize Coupe Concept that was presented at the Beijing Motor Show in April. The front and rear fascias have naturally been toned down a little for production while it does maintain the same overall side profile.

The NMC uses Volkswagen's MQB platform and is set to be offered with 4-cylinder 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI engines connected to a 7-speed DSG transmission.

An official unveiling is planned for the Guangzhou Auto Show in December before arriving in dealerships in the first half of 2015. Pricing will start at approximately 180,000 yuan (29,000 USD).

My first and favorite car was a 1999 vw passat, I always said I wanted to buy another to relive my childhood, but I see they are making nearly impossible to do so with these terrible designs.

There are around 7 billion people on earth. Can't an automotive giant like VW fire the current design team and find a bunch of talented designers? How hard can it be to design a good VW? Even hyundai makes good looking cars.

don't blame the designers for 'boring' designs. they are more than capable of bringing out stunning cars, but they are limited by what the higher-ups want. there's no question vw has very conservative designs. but they are very well done with much attention to detail. hyundais and kias are certainly more interesting to look at, but they are an inferior product. they have yet to even hold a candle to german engineering and refinement.

What coupe? It's not lower than Jetta. It's a SEDAN! It does look boring but also refined.

Looks 10 years old. I really don't know how people still call Toyotas boring when VW make the most boring looking cars.
